Hi Ron,
I think the best is to use the Honda battery, a Group 51R.  The group 51 
can be used, but the terminals are on the wrong side and it involves just a 
little further for the battery cables.  The 51 or 51R is available nearly 
anywhere, like Costco, for about $38 or so and has better cranking power 
than the original battery.  It is slightly smaller than the stock battery, 
so it might need a new top bolt down piece.
